A newly erected Purple Heart memorial rests on the south side of Calvin Spencer Park. The Monument stands in honor of the sacrifices made by America's servicemen and servicewomen who were killed or wounded in combat. Jacob Olbrich undertook the project in November 2012 to earn his Eagle Scout Award, the highest advancement rank in scouting. With support from the community, and the help of fellow Scouts, Olbrich’s efforts have culminated in a new Marengo landmark.

The McHenry County Historical Society in Union celebrated 50 years during the 2013 “Hip for History” Heritage Fair on July 14.

The new Marengo Guns is now open at 20014 E. Grant Hwy, Marengo. The 10,000 square foot retail showroom has new and antique guns; hunting, fishing, archery and camping gear; as well as Carhartt clothing, jeans, and Marengo spirit wear.
